Brendan Steele returned to PGA National's Champion Course this morning to put the finishing touches on a 1-under-par 32-37=69 in his second round.
What an adventure. It took 10 holes before he penciled in his first par. Instead, Steele exchanged six birdies with three bogeys going on. Darkness fell on Friday after he rolled in his fourth consecutive birdie to begin the round. (For the record, his opening conversion was adjusted from 15'4" to five feet.) But it was crickets coming in with eight pars and a double bogey-6 at the 16th hole. Golf tournament are scheduled for 72 holes, so he can't be displeased to be positioned at 5-under 135, just two strokes off the 36-hole lead. Feb 28 - 11:33 AM

The second round of The Honda Classic was suspended for darkness at 6:12 p.m. ET.

The entire late-early draw has completed 36 holes, but all 68 from the opposing wave are far from finished. (All four that have either withdrawn or were disqualified from the tournament were in the early-late.) All in the stranded wave have played at least three holes in the second round, two have as many as 12 in the books. At 8-under-par, Brendan Steele will sleep on a two-shot lead over 36-hole clubhouse leader Patrick Reed. Steele opened his second round with birdies on his first four holes. That stretched was sparked by a roll from 15'4" at the par-4 first hole and extended by a hole-out from a bunker 12 yards away at the par-4 second. His next two birdies disappeared from 8-10 feet. He will return to the tee at the par-3 fifth hole PGA National's Champion Course at 7:30 a.m. ET on Saturday to resume his round.

Brendan Steele spun a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in his opening round of The Honda Classic, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Steele has been really solid for several months now. He arrived at PGA National having cashed in 12 consecutive starts, four of which resulting in a top 25. Today at PGA National, he hit 13 greens in regulation and holed a field-tying-high six birdies. His longest conversions measured 11'8" and 16'8" at the par-4 sixth and eighth holes, respectively, but the highlight of his round was a crazy experience at the par-4 14th. He rinsed both his tee ball and approach right of safety. After taking a drop and laying four 27 yards from the hole, Steele promptly jarred it for a 5.

Brendan Steele has made each of his eight cuts to begin the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season and readies for The Honda Classic.

He is fresh off a T14 at the Northern Trust Open and ranks 25th in the FedExCup standings, so form is not an issue. While he's made each of his four cuts at PGA National's Champion Course, he has failed to do any better than a T33 in 2014. Considering that he's playing arguably the most consistent golf of his PGA TOUR career, he could be in line for his first top 25 at Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

Brendan Steele went low to the tune of a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in the second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open, improving to 4-under 138 for the tournament.

It was a wet and cold day at TPC Scottsdale, so his 4-under tied the low round of the morning wave. He circled six birdies, with a 21'4" effort on the par-4 ninth hole to end his round standing as the highlight. Steele has cracked the top 10 on his last three trips to this event, so this was a welcomed round for many gamers.

Brendan Steele capped off his week at PGA West's Palmer Private with a bogey-free, 8-under-par 32-32=64 to join Charley Hoffman atop the Humana Challenge leaderboard at 21-under 267.

Steele consistently posted sub-69s all week but saved his best for last. He took advantage of all four par 5s, playing them at 4-under on the day. Most of the damage was done prior to reaching the green as he walked off the 18th green with 5.900 strokes gained:tee-to-green. The season-low round of 64 puts Steele in a share of the clubhouse lead, where he will watch the remaining golfers intently.

Brendon Steele is a veteran of four Humana Challenges and is back again this week.

Steele has made two of his four cuts in this event, but his T56 in 2013 is the weak highlight. While he's made each of his four cuts in the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season, this will be his first action since a T37 in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to end the 2014 portion of the schedule. A long layover and a poor course history are reason enough to bench him in all but the deepest formats.
Jan 21 - 2:15 PM

Brendan Steele enters the 2014 holiday break ranked 67th in the FedExCup standings.

Steele finished the Fall Series a perfect 4-for-4, collecting 120 FEC points along the way. Entering his fifth full season on the PGA TOUR, he's yet to finish a season with fewer than six top 25s. Consistency is king in fantasy golf and with Steele's number of missed cuts reducing each year on TOUR, he's becoming a more valuable fantasy asset as each season passes.

Brendan Steele carded a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in his opening round of the Sanderson Farms Championship, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Since we last saw Steele in Vegas, he switched to Wilson irons and utility clubs. They paid immediate dividends at the Country Club of Jackson where he wiped away one bogey with four birdies and signed his card leading the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green at 3.371. Perhaps Steele should have added a Wilson putter to his bag as well. His strokes gained: putting measured -1.789 at last check.

Brendan Steele makes his fourth journey to the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open on the heels of a T21 at last week's Open.

Steele is a solid option in any fantasy format this week. In his previous three trips to TPC Summerlin, he has a pair of top-16 finishes. He is growing more established on the PGA TOUR by the month, so his blend of solid course history and steady current form is an attractive one.

Brendan Steele buried a walk-off birdie putt from 27'7" at the par-5 18th hole in his second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to survive the cut on the number.

Steele was down and up all day en route to an even-par 36-35=71. He traded four birdies with four bogeys and reached the midpoint in 3-over 145. While the final birdie was the most compelling, he also converted attempts from 45'9" and 25'6" at Nos. 9 and 16, respectively. Steele's Playoffs life hinged on that last one, though, as he entered the week ranked 76th in FedExCup points. The heavy lifting has just begun, however, as 80 golfers scored 145 or lower. So, another cut of low 70 and ties will fall once 54 holes are complete. It's the second time in as many weeks that the MDF provision is invoked. Prior to The Barclays, the last time it was needed in the Playoffs was at the 2008 Deutsche Bank Championship.

Brendan Steele returns to favorable venue, TPC Boston, for his third shot at the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Steele has earned top 20s in his only two trips to TPC Boston, thanks to seven of his eight rounds going for 69 or better. He enters the week ranked 76th in the FedExCup standings, which means a missed cut just won't cut it if he wants to advance onto the BMW at Cherry Hills next week. Steele has all the tools to contend in a low-scoring shootout, as he's not afraid to post a round of 62, he's already done it twice this season.

The final round of the PGA Championship has been suspended due to heavy rain at 12:53 p.m. ET. Play is set to resume at 2:40 p.m. with the last tee time going off at 4:19 p.m.

This is not a dangerous situation, as there is no lightening in the area, but the amount of rain proved to be more than Valhalla Golf Club could hold. The TNT broadcast has reported that they hope to have players back on the course in as few as 10 minutes, but that appears to be optimistic judging by the pictures of the golf course. They have the squeegees out on the fairways and greens in an attempt to eliminate puddling. We will provide updates as they become available.

Brendan Steele added 10 more points to his war chest in the third round of the Barracuda Championship with his bogey-free 5-under-par 33-34=67 and now has 30 points for the tournament.

He's been incredibly consistent, securing 9 points in the first round and 11 in the second. Steele's 13'1" birdie on the par-3 16th was easily the highlight of his day. His ball-striking was stellar, splitting 11 of 14 fairways and landing 16 GIR. After securing top-10 finishes at MontrĂȘux G&CC in each of his last two trips, he now stands poised to make a run at his second PGA TOUR title in Sunday's final round.

Brendan Steele carded a 4-under-par 34-34=68 worth 11 points in his second round of the Barracuda Championship.

He shot the same score in the opening round, but collected only nine points despite six birdies. A double-bogey 7 at the 18th hole spoiled the walk. Today, Steele traded just four birdies with two bogeys, but converted an eagle at 18 to vault up the leaderboard. With 20 points, he's just six off of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
